Pinehurst Resort announced it will break ground on its first new golf course in nearly three decades. The new course at “The Cradle of American Golf” will be designed by Tom Doak, one of the most respected and decorated contemporary golf course architects, and is slated to open in 2024, coinciding with the June return of the U.S. Open to Pinehurst No. 2.
